In your anger do not sin…search your hearts and be silent.
Oh my goodness I’ve been a walking, talking wad of anger lately.
My Celiac Disease diagnosis triggered a grieving in me…
And I hung out in the angry stage of grief for several days.
And since Sunday when I helped break up a dog attack, I’ve been in an all-out battle with anger.
“Take every thought captive”…
2 Corinthians 10:5
Now there’s a word that implies war.
That’s how I feel, like a war is gong on inside…
Sometimes my serenity is threatened. That’s a fact … it’s how I respond to the threat that matters.
This morning, in prayer, I heard these two things…
‘in your anger don’t sin…be quiet.’
and…‘take every thought captive’…
So today I will be quiet…not talking about what’s making me angry.
And I’ll put a guard at the door of my mind and monitor my thoughts, only letting in the ones that bring peace.
How do you respond when your serenity is threatened?
Love to you my friends…
